All great advice from previous posts.
But just so you know. Some woman can breastfeed really successfully but never get much milk from expressing too.
I expressed for many many months. ..and initially only got about 30mls.
The most I ever pumped was about 120mls.
So don't get too stressed if you don't get much milk to start with.

Thank you so much ladies for your help. I woke up at 3:50 am today and expressed 75 ml from my right breast in 30 mins and 55 ml from my left breast in another 30 mins. I was so excited to see the bottle filling up!
My right breast is my baby's favourite side. I was just wondering if it's possible to just feed her from that side all day and pump from the other at every other feeding (to build up a stockpile); and perhaps switch sides each day. Any thoughts on this?
Can I just add that when I pumped milk this morning, my right breast was hard and leaking. Hence it was a relatively easy pumping session for this newbie.
